Family Self-Sufficiency Program

The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program enables families assisted through the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program and Public Housing (PH) residents, to increase their earned income and reduce their dependency on welfare assistance and rental subsidies. Under the FSS program, low-income families are provided opportunities for education, job training, counseling and other forms of social service assistance, while living in assisted housing, so they can obtain skills necessary to achieve self-sufficiency.
